The opera I Lombardi alla prima crociata • The Lombardi on the First Crusade
The opera is one of Giuseppe Verdi’s early works.
Although the opera was premiered in 1843 after Nabucco with great success for the young composer at the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, it is one of the less performed operas today. I Lombardi is set in Milan and Antioch (now Antakya in Turkey), which is occupied by the Crusaders. And of course it’s also about love, betrayal and murder.
The opera was later translated into French and returned to Italy under the name Jerusalem (Gerusalemme) in 1850 at La Scala in Milan.
